Educator practices impact student outcomes and are defined by standard feedback/evaluation tools. Performance evaluations, such as the Standards of Effective Teaching (SET), are used in SPPS to provide feedback about an educator’s practice. Evaluations are summative and not based on a single classroom/job observation but instead on multiple instructional and professional experiences.
Working in the field of education is a complex career. Feedback/evaluation tools are multi-faceted to encompass the depth of practices that contribute to the important task of educating children. These tools are not only used in the time of evaluation but are an important document in goal setting, coaching, feedback, and professional growth practices.
